Officers paid a visit to a room at the Imperial Inn on Thursday night after receiving an anonymous “Narcotics Complaint.” Once at the hotel they made their way to room 210 at the Broad Street motel. Police report they peered through the blinds of the room and noticed a lot of moving around after Sgt. Haigh knocked on the door. Seconds later, a female opened the door. A man sitting in the corner of the room told police that he would walk outside to speak.
The report shows that Robert Ogletree and two females then exited the room. It was quickly discovered that Ogletree had a warrant for his arrest out of Nashville. Police asked if they could search the motel room after finding a plastic baggy in Ogletree’s possession that had cocaine residue on it. Ogletree told officers “NO.”
Detective Pitts arrived on the scene and obtained a search warrant. Once inside the room, a bag of cocaine was found under the motel mattress. A cell phone containing what were described as “Narcotic Transactions” was also found along with a digital scale.
33-Year old Ogletree was charged with “Felony Possession of a Schedule II Drug with Intent” and “Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.”
